Updating existing products via .csv - changes not reflected on admin catalog

I export all product data to .csv file and updated the product information. Went on importing the changed .csv file and changed also the ‘store’ attribute to default. Reading through the forum, this seems to fix the problem with images not showing.
Import went just fine and checked the frontend catalog - all was fine.

Well, going through the admin catalog - nothing is updated, product info doesn’t get updated?! I wonder how this is possible, does magento store different info for the store catalog and admin catalog. This doesn’t make any sense?

Have any1 else had similar problems with import?

tuomaas if you are running a single store application you may want to try changing store “default” to “admin” that should work for you.

Hi Tomas!
Thanks for the tip. After a bit of frustration i grabbed the bull the the horns and started the import process again.
Changing the store attribute from “default” to “admin” solved the problem.
